The goal of this operations guide is to assist those who seek to establish and manage fast growing, high-yield afforestation plantations for the vegetation of phosphogypsum (PG) stacks. The approach offers an innovative reclamation option that makes beneficial use of PG rather than treating it as waste. These benefits include increasing carbon sequestration, improving long-term ground water quality, increasing wildlife habitat and ecosystem biodiversity, and enhancing long-term sustainability while reducing long-term maintenance costs.
